Was she doing well, and now not so well? This may be another 'plateau' on the voyage. I know it stinks. I have had to do this with my mother in law. My Wife and I took care of her as long as we could, but eventually we had to put her into a nursing home. it was just too much to do ourselves. First you have to know that as Dementia advances, there will be nothing you can do to change it. These drugs are given to retard the advance of dementia/Alzheimers. They do not cure it or totally stop it.

Something like that should be prescribed by her doctor.

You can give your mom medication that are used to treat sleep changes following a doctor's prescription. You can also try using non-drug treatments for sleep change like having regular meal times and daily exercises.

I used to take Remeron, and it made me sleep all the time. The best thing you can do is talk to her doctor and tell them how it is affecting her. They will make any necessary changes to her medication. Please don't try to give her anything new without talking to her doctor first, because psych medications can easily interact with others and cause unintentional side effects.
